Pop-Up Mini-Golf Course Coming to Downtown Tacoma
This sounds fun: in June, during the U.S. Open the Tacoma Art Museum and the Tacoma Arts Commission hosting an art-themed mini-golf course running through downtown Tacoma. Free to the public, the 10-hole “Pop-Up Art Putt!” will be open from Thursday, June 18, through Sunday, June 21.
Each of the 10 miniature golf holes, designed by Tacoma artists is built around a theme - comic and playful, or showcasing local landmarks. Artists, each working with a team to design and build the installations, include Jori Adkins, Sean Alexander, Gabriel Brown, Oliver Doriss, Christopher Hoppin, Nori Kimura, Jillian Nintze, Chris Sharp, Shayne Weeks and Taylor Woodruff.
A free kick-off party is planned for June 18, during Third Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m. There will be music, food trucks, and a beer garden, and the chance to vote on your favorite of the holes. And, of course, you'll have the chance to try out the new mini-course for yourself.
Pop-Up Art Putt! Hours are Thursday, June 18, from 5– 8 p.m.; Friday, June 19, and Saturday, June 20, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday, June 21, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Clubs and balls can be checked out at the TAM. Read more about the Pop-Up Art Putt here.
This sounds like a great way to celebrate the US Open... without going anywhere near Chambers Bay.
